DESCRIPTIVE TEXT

 In descriptive writing, the author does not just tell the reader what
was seen, felt, tested, smelled, or heard. Rather, the author
describes something from their own experience and, through careful
choice of words and phrasing, makes it seem real. Descriptive
writing is vivid, colorful, and detailed.

EXAMPLE

 Her last smile to me wasn't a sunset. It was an eclipse, the last eclipse,
noon dying away to darkness where there would be no dawn.
 My Uber driver looked like a deflating airbag and sounded like talk radio
on repeat.
 The old man was bent into a capital C, his head leaning so far forward that
his beard nearly touched his knobby knees.
 The painting was a field of flowers, blues and yellows atop deep green
stems that seemed to call the viewer in to play.
 My dog's fur felt like silk against my skin and her black coloring shone,
absorbing the sunlight and reflecting it back like a pure, dark mirror.

EXPOSITORY TEXT

 Expository writing's main purpose is to explain. It is a subject-oriented writing style,


in which authors focus on telling you about a given topic or subject without voicing
their personal opinions. These types of essays or articles furnish you with relevant
facts and figures but do not include their opinions. This is one of the most common
types of writing. You always see it in textbooks and how-to articles. The author just
tells you about a given subject, such as how to do something.

EXAMPLE

 Many people associate the taste of pumpkins with fall. In October, companies from
Starbucks to McDonalds roll out their pumpkin-flavored lattes and desserts. Here is how
to make an easy pumpkin pie using only five ingredients. First, make sure you have all of
the ingredients.

NARRATIVE TEXT

 The author will create different characters and tell you what happens to them
(sometimes the author writes from the point of view of one of the characters—this is
known as first person narration). Novels, short stories, novellas, poetry, and biographies
can all fall in the narrative writing style. Simply, narrative writing answers the question:
“What happened then?

EXAMPLE

 “I don’t think that’s a good idea,” said Jaelyn.

“You never used to be such a girl!” retorted Orin, pushing open the door.
Reluctantly, Jaelyn followed.

This is a narrative because it’s telling a story. There are different characters conversing, and a plot is
unravelling.
